OLA Fou students from Solomon Islands, Kiribati and Vanuatu welcomed the SI board members on Saturday.
After the long sessions from Thursday up to Saturday the students gathered together to rehearse and prepare a welcome ceremony for their board members.
The welcome programme started with a chorus sung by the students in Bislama pidgin and a traditional Maori call from one of their teachers. A short welcome speech was presented by one of the staff members.
One of the board members expressed her joy hearing the chorus sung in Bislama pidgin.
It shows how the students worked together despite their differences.
She on behalf of the board members welcomed the fellow students from Vanuatu and Kiribati.
After the welcome speeches, dinner was served and the board members mingled with the students enjoying their dinner and listened to speeches from their teachers and board members.
One of the students said that after the teachers assessed their last works they should have their graduation tomorrow.
